11:27 And they are coming again into Jerusalem, ...
  and in the temple sanctuary as he is walking around, ...
  come before him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders.
11:28 And they said to him, ... "In what authority do you do these things, ...
  or who gave to you this authority so that you may do these things" ?
11:29 And the Jesus said to them, ... "I will ask you one question, and you answer me, ...
  and I will tell you in what authority these things I do."
11:30 "The baptism of John, was it out of heaven? ...
  or out of men? ... Answer me!"
11:31 And they were discussing with themselves saying, ...
  "If we say from heaven, he will say, ...
  Then why did you not believe him" ?
11:32 "But if we say, ... 'From men,' "...
  They feared the crowd, ...
  for all men believed that John really was a prophet.
11:33 And having answered to the Jesus they say, ... "We don't know."
  And the Jesus says to them, ... "Neither am I saying to you in which authority I am doing these things."
